Jason and I have started a list of things to research and will be compiling a list of things we need to make sure to take. Of course his big questions are what is our international cell phone/data plan details and what type of internet availability is in Zambia. I already thinking of "What is the best comfy outfit to wear on the flights that doesn't seem like I'm wearing pajamas?" :) Next in preparation on mine and Jason's part is checking out what vaccinations we will need and getting appointments with our doctors for those.
I stopped by to see Chris and John in Temple this past Thursday to drop off some donations we got from Medi (a manufacturer of prosthetic parts/supplies). They donated some very nice liners! THANK YOU MEDI!
Chris and John have been boxing up parts and supplies in plastic tubs to ship over the Zambia. They will build a crate 8' long x 4' wide x 4' high to pack all the supplies in to ship over at the end of November. The crate will leave from Houston port and travel to Africa, then will be trucked from the port there to New Day Orphanage where we will be staying for our trip. It will take several months for the crate to get there and will be pretty expensive. We will be able to send a couple of work benches and equipment that can be left at New Day for future trips.
